“They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, so we’d like to offer them ours tonight.” So said Bono on Monday, when he and the rest of U2 invited Eagles of Death Metal onstage for their first performance since a terrorist attack claimed 89 lives at their Nov. 13 concert in Paris.

The band had previously shared their visceral, firsthand accounts of the shooting, but their brief union with U2, who were closing a two-night set in Paris, was a more rousing, optimistic affair: The bands began by covering Patti Smith’s “People Have the Power,” then the Eagles took over and performed one of their own tunes, “I Love You All the Time.”
